Default PROJECT: Big Bird !

So, there's quite a long list of things to follow. For Christmas, as a present from the bf, I get my Ford ranger Edge taken care of !

Pictures are to follow soon, however as of right now this is what is happening. Leave me feedback, I don't wanna go ahead with anything that might be too sketchy !

1. Idler puller replacement because my truck squeaks nonstop !
2. Paint door handles, because they've faded from black to grey.
3. (And I'm not sure about this one but..) Paint the wheels/rims matte black to match door handles and other trim.
4. Touch up trim.
5. Light bar in the back as well as inside the bed.
6. Green LED's inside the air vents and footwells, turned on by headlight switch.
7. Re-paint tonneau cover.
8. Tint windows

There's probably more, but I'm hoping for most of these things to be done before the new year, uhm wish me luck ?

door handles are easy. just buy a can of black magic and just remosterize them lol works for me


only 4 bucks and it works on tires and anything plastic like your mirrors. not the grill though had to paint thatc:/
here is a pic of what it does for mine -


closer shot of the tires and mirrors -
